    I've made up my mind. This is the rifle I will be purchasing this year. I have an agreement with the wife. Ok not an agreement but a somewhat quasi understanding that I go to school, I get 2 new guns. One per year at least. Reason being is I give up all me free time during the week, make extra money going to school and I need something for a reward.

    I would build one as that is what I am in the extended process of doing! You can smuggle in the parts above and beyond the projected budget if you need to.:D

    The lower build takes 1 hour tops.....don't know about the upper though as that is my next step. I would think 1 hour at the most as well. Any procurement through whatever means is a VICTORY!:)

    Now I just have to save the money. May be close to a year before I buy, hopefully less.

    If it shoots anything like my V-Match, that's a hellava rifle. Good choice IMHO.

    Very nice. You will actually save a little buying this model that comes w/ the Magpul goodies already installed.

    It took me a few years before I even wanted to touch a firearm after leaving the Army I hatted weapons so much. Now I cant seem to get enough of them. Is that rifle a Delton? The reason I ask is I believe Aimsurplus.com had some for sale a while back for a great price.

    Hey doc, that actually could be good news - why not start building an AR now! Besides saving money, use that time to research every part that goes in to YOUR RIFLE and I guarantee you will end up with a rifle much better than Bushamster! :D

    And you could have a lower receiver done in a couple months - something in your hands before Christmas! The down side is that no way will you wait a year to finish it... Oh wait, that's not so bad. ;)

    Hmm, Lifetime Guarantee goes a long way. I bought mine in Clintons 1st year. Still runs great. They were high back then. $1100.00 for a DCM. I was into high power shoots at the time. I got burned on the price from one perspective. But it has been flawless.

    The AR I built has a Lifetime Warranty provided by uh, me. And I kinda trust that guy and the parts that went into the rifle! :D

    Not so long as I get my degree and maintain a c average which keeps my funding.
